Looking to make extra cash on the Memorial Day weekend? If you don’t have any other plans, why not take the time to bring it a little extra green to help pad that bank account. There are a few ways that you can make this happen, here are five things you can try out:
Offer to Dogsit
Dog Sitting is a great long weekend gig. There are plenty of people headed out of town that are looking for someone to watch their fur babies while they’re living it up. If you’re a big puppy fan, then this is your time to shine.
When I went to LA for a week, I dropped my best buddy off at a pet sitter and he had the time of his life. Dog owners like me are always looking for the best person to watch their dog, someone who will give them a mini vacation while they take their own.
Host a Garage Sale
If you have extra things that you want to get rid of, then a garage sale is a great way for you to make a little extra cash. While you’re not going to rake it in, you can definitely make a bit of money that will help off-set Christmas presents or simply top off your food budget.
Get a Job at a Local Event
Long weekends are a great opportunity to find a job working at an event. Whether it’s catering, taking tickets, selling merchandise or running the cash register, there is plenty of opportunity to pick up some extra work.
Take a look at your local event calendar and see what’s out there or contact a local event management or catering company and see what part time work they have available.
Rent Out Your Spare Room
If you happen to have a spare room that you can rent out, then over a holiday weekend is a great time to do that. You can easily make a few hundred dollars, pending on the state of your room and how much you want to put into it.
When it comes to renting out a spare room, guest house or unoccupied condo, then renting it out through a platform like Airbnb is a great way to make extra money. With people visiting for just the weekend, there’s definitely the opportunity to make money.
Freelance Shopping & Delivery
If COVID-19 has taught me anything, it’s that there is MORE than enough work to go around in the shopping and delivery arena. If shopping seems to be a fun thing for you to do, then pick up some freelance work in the grocery delivery arena.
But freelance work in this area isn’t restricted to freelance shopping for groceries, you could also do food delivery or Uber people around. When there are people celebrating, there are always going to be opportunities for delivery.
